The U.S. could have the coronavirus outbreak “largely” behind it by June if guidelines are followed properly, the country’s vice president said Wednesday. 

“I hope people look at what happens if all of us continue to do our part, and that is by some time in early June, we could well have the coronavirus largely behind us as a nation, reopen our country, put America back to work,” Vice President Mike Pence told CNN.

“I never want to minimize the loss. I just want to make sure people know there is light at the end of the tunnel.”
